"What a gorgeous festival we had. All of the art is spectacular!" said Cyd Wolf, co-organizer/founder of the Madonnari Arts Festival. "Congratulations to the artists and thank you to everyone who participated. I add an emphatic thank you to the presenters, Little Italy Neighborhood Association/LINA and Baltimore Jazz Alliance/BJA."

The festival's estimated attendance was 30,000. Wolf says plans are already underway for the 2020 festival and "other exciting community projects." If you didn't have a chance to attend this spectacular September 6-8 event, stroll through Little Italy soon to view the gorgeous 3-D chalk artwork still available until Mother Nature washes them away.
